Operation Overlord Alright, out of the #thinktank channel on an irc, an idea has developed that I feel will help our cause during the 15th, and increase the lulz that can be had. First off, this plan will require 4 anon from each protest. The smaller protests might have some issue fulfilling the requirements, but if our cause has grown enough by then, I think we'll be ok. 1st Anon is Cafe Anon. He will have a laptop and set up at a internet cafe, starbucks, etc. several blocks (or even like a mile, if he's paranoid) away from the protest itself. He will be in contact with other Cafe Anons around the world at other protests through IRC, forums, or whatever other means they deem necessary. Next two Anons are Camera Anons. They will each have digital camcorders, and will take turns filming the protest and any interesting bits, i.e. conversations with police, scilons, etc., i.e. one films while the other runs back to the Cafe Anon and gets the video uploaded onto the internet. 4th Anon is Mob Anon. He will remain at the protest, and will either have a way to get in contact with the Cafe Anon or one of the Camera Anons. The ability to instantly get ahold of one another is critical. So, how this works, is that throughout the day videos of the protest will be constantly uploaded. This provides several bonuses, one of which is xbox hueg important. First, Anons worldwide will take heart as they know that not only will they have scores of /b/rothas at their side, but thousands stand with them worldwide. Secondly, it will give the public a better idea at the sheer scale of these protests, simply through the number of videos that flood in. Third, and most important, is that the scilons have over a month to prepare for our next round of protests; they will probably have some counter-tactics prepared. The protests in earlier timezones will witness these tactics, and info will go straight to the Cafe Anon, who will in turn inform the other Cafe Anons of these tactics. There will be great hiveminding going on, and the Anonymous herd of cats will come up with a plan to counter these tactics, and then inform their respective Mob Anons, who will disseminate the information to the rest of the crowd. If the scilon tactics are discovered and have a counter developed early enough, once the central or even west coast protests begin, we will be able to stop the scilons in their tracks before they even get their plans off the ground. Several weaknesses in the plan need to be discussed; first, the Cafe Anon is rather isolated in his position. Any scilons that tail the camera anons back to the cafe anons might begin harrassing them. This can be helped in a couple ways; first, several anon can remain with cafe anon, though this detracts from the protest. Second, a group of anon can be designated as /b/lackup in case the scilons attack the cafe anon, though this could cause a confrontation, a DO NOT WANT scenario for us or for the owner of the cafe. Third, the Cafe Anon could simply inform the manager at his location of what it is that he'll be doing; a source of revenue throughout the day is probably going to be fine with the manager, and if scilons come in and start trying to hassle and bullbait the cafe anon, the manager himself could provide /b/lackup. a DO WANT scenario. Secondly, we begin to take some semblance of organization by having the group of cafe anons. They need to not be namefags. Do not stick out. Their job is to only upload videos onto youtube and share information. It also provides a digital target, if the cafe anons are only communicating through one means, i.e. only through irc. This can be remedied by the cafe anon simply not being idiots, so please, do not allow morons to be cafe anons. And make SURE they have means of communicating with the other cafe anon other than through irc. Forums, aim, even unaffiliated chatrooms could work. Hell, they could go on gaia, if they wanted a place noone would ever expect to find them. So, what do you all think? could we do it?
